We were referred here from another nearby wine farm. The museum is very interesting. But our highlight was our wine tasting facilitator - Susanna. She was very sweet, extremely friendly. We tasted 6 wines and had a good laugh each time with her. The gentleman who served me at the till was just as friendly. Their wines are definitely worth... More

We were lucky to get a table in this idyllic location on a Sunday lunchtime, having not booked In advance during the peak of tourist season. However, the staff were over-run with tables (especially lots of large groups), so service was extremely slow, our food arrived cold, and to my disappointment, the same (lamb based) sauce had been used on...

We loved jazz in the bottle and sung by Mercia... she had stories that made the wine even more delicious! Thanks to our driver and guide Marlene for a wonderful day in the winelands!

We went to Solms Delta for a picnic lunch. I never thought I'd say I was tired of eating out, but after two weeks of doing it every day (whilst on hols) it was nice to do something a little different. The area we were led to for our picnic wasn't particularly picturesque (unlike a lot of the vineyards). However,... More

The picnic hamper is great value and really tasty food,accompanied by the farms wines... More

This farm is run on a really nice concept. The farm supports the families that work on the farm through social programmes, e.g. education, housing, etc. The museum is small but has a few interesting elements to it. If the wine from the vineyard was nice then this would be an awesome tasting experience unfortunately the wines let themselves down... More
